Tiger roars to another victoryHeadlines
Toga Tiger (near) comes to win his race

Jeremy Gask's excellent handling of Toga Tiger saw the gelding win his fifth race from his six most recent starts in the William Hill iPad App Now Available Handicap at Kempton.

The 4-1 chance arrived an out-of-form horse from Paul Midgley just over a year ago but has hardly put a foot wrong for his new Wiltshire stable.

Stepping up to a mile from a recent strike over seven furlongs at Wolverhampton, Toga Tiger only just improved his sequence as he stuck his neck out in plucky fashion for Raul Da Silva to finish a nose and a short head up on Diplomatic and Light From Mars.

Gask said: "He's had issues and it's just a case of managing him. He does nearly all his work on the treadmill. Today was a worry after he ran a stormer on his first run back after a break at seven furlongs, and he could have done with some more cover."

James Unett's long drive from Shropshire was rewarded as his only runner bolted up in the opening race.

Big Sylv (11-4) was paying her first visit to the Sunbury Polytrack, having largely raced at Wolverhampton, and she appeared to be enjoying the wintry scene as she sprang three lengths clear in the William Hill Download The App Fillies' Handicap.

Jockey David Probert said: "It's probably riding a bit slower than usual, but the staff have done a great job on the surface. I thought the track would suit and when I asked her to go, she excelled herself."

Oswestry-based Unett added: "We're grinding to a halt at home, but the journey down was all right. I think she's an improving sort and we'll keep her ticking along before she eventually goes back to her owner in Ireland for a break."

Gertrude Versed, a half-sister to the smart Gertrude Bell bred by John Gosden's wife Rachel Hood, landed the William Hill iPad App Now Available Maiden Fillies' Stakes as a 4-5 favourite should.

"The jockey (Franny Norton) said she tries hard. She doesn't have gears, she just gallops, and she ran well enough last time to win this," said Gosden's representative, Les Reynolds.
